Looking for sewing instructions to use a newborn sleeper as a teddy bear. Any help would be appreciated!
Hi Wendy, Thanks for your comment. We don’t have a pattern available for this, but I just Googled “newborn sleeper as a teddy bear” and there are a few links to patterns (Pinterest) and image inspiration for this type of project. The internet is a wealth of information when it comes to craft projects! Good luck with your search and Happy Sewing!
These are so cute and practical … shall do a few for grandchildren and friends. Thank you for this great idea!
Thank you! Have fun making them.
I think that it should be mentioned that in order to be able to be used safely in the microwave, 100% cotton thread should be used for sewing. I made the kitty and it turned out so cute.

What kind of rice.
Hi Lynn, Thanks for your interest. Any rice can be used, but if microwaving a scented rice, such as Jasmine, will give it off more of a scent than regular white rice.
